A new Franz Ferdinand track, “Dandelion Blow” has been posted on the band’s Myspace page.

Franz front man Alex Kapranos explains on the site that the new song was written as a theme for forthcoming Scottish film “Hallam Foe.”

Kapranos says that the film’s themes of “Sexual tension, voyeurism, dark humour, Scotland and death” were the perfect “ingredients for a song by the Ferdinand.”

Kapranos co-wrote “Dandelion Blow” with band member Nick McCarthy after he attended script meetings and early screening edits at Glasgow Film Theatre.

The soundtrack to “Hallam Foe” also includes contributions from Franz’s fellow Domino label artists; Psapp, Unpoc and Sons & Daughters.

“Hallam Foe” is due to screen in competition at the Berlin Film Festival which starts tomorrow (February 8). It will be released in the UK in 2007.
